Who Let Go First?

I'm losing you,
I can feel it whenever we speak.
We may smile and laugh;
But we're both becoming weak.

The smiles and laughs are not real anymore.
I feel like I'm running into a locked door.

Who let our friendship slip away?
Who's to blame for this massive decay?

It's starting to feel like it's inevitable to stop.
We've fallen to the bottom and can't find our way back to the top.

Who let go first?
Was it me; or was it you?

I'm not sure if it even matters now;
It feels like there's nothing left we can do.
We've given all that our hearts will allow.

Who let go first, though?
Oh, how I wish I knew.

Oh my.

Yes, I fell for my best friend.

I got over the heartbreak though.

But losing a friend is. Hard. More than anything, I miss my friend. :/

So I can totally relate to this...Good work. :)

This poem reminded me of the transition between middle school and high school. I lost a lot of old friends during that period. It wasnt like we got in a fight or anything, we simply stopped talking and drifted apart slowly. This poem was so beautiful because I think that everyone has those friendships that just sort of vanished without a definate reason. Amazing<33
